Call for papers: "Project Management and Scheduling"

For a special issue of the European Journal of Industrial Engineering.

The EURO working group on project management and scheduling (WG-PMS) provides an excellent opportunity to discuss recent and important issues in the field of project management (project planning, project scheduling, project control), and machine scheduling (single and parallel processor problems, flow shops, open shops, job shops, etc.). For this special issue, we are seeking the best available new research in these areas in order to provide a valuable resource for scholars and practitioners striving to leverage techniques and knowledge to improve project management and scheduling.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at PMS 2016, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Project management:
    • Network modelling
    • Project scheduling
    • Resource management
    • Due-date management
    • Project risk management
    • Project scheduling under uncertainty
    • Proactive/reactive project scheduling
    • Multi-criteria project scheduling
    • Applications
    • Software
  • Machine scheduling:
    • Shop scheduling
    • Scheduling with additional constraints
    • Machine assignment and scheduling
    • Flexible/robust scheduling
    • Grid scheduling
    • Multi-criteria scheduling
    • Applications
    • Software

Important Dates
Submission of manuscripts: 30 September, 2016
Notification to authors: 31 January, 2017
Final versions due: 30 November, 2017
